You love your pets, but you can’t guarantee they will keep your carpet and tile clean. Stains from the soiled carpet can last for years if left untreated. Scrub away accidents and spills as they occur. And invest in professional carpet and tile cleaning at least once per year to reach the deep-rooted stains and odors.

5 Tips for Carpet Upkeep

Look to these tips for carpet care:

  1. Spot Clean Each Pet Accident: Mix a few drops of liquid dish soap with hydrogen peroxide for a quick DIY carpet cleaner. Scrub the area with the cleaner, wipe it with a wet cloth, and wait for it to dry.
  2. Sprinkle Baking Soda or a Pet Deodorizing Powder: Before you vacuum, spread baking soda to soak up any lingering odors or moisture. When you vacuum 30 minutes later, you will vacuum away any of the smells that the baking soda collected.
  3. Carpet Shampoo or Steam Clean Every 3 Months: You can use carpet shampoo to wash away any collected dirt and grime. When you do this once every 3 months, you will keep the carpet looking and smelling fresh.
  4. Vacuum Twice Per Week: You will find that you can keep your carpet in good shape by vacuuming every few days. Pets can shed, and their fur and dander are collected into the rug. When you vacuum regularly, dust and debris will not build up.
  5. Hire Professionals: Carpet maintenance is always a good idea, but some pet stains should be left to the professionals. Do not hesitate to contact a trusted team to rejuvenate your carpet.

With these tips, you will find that you can keep your warm and cozy carpet looking as good as new, even with your furry friends making themselves at home.
